Re: How often does Mint 18.3 update its clock setting?

Yep that's it, the example shows a line that says 'drift' I don't have that line, nor does it tell me how often, every 5 minutes or 10, or 20 does it connect and correct itselg?

"ES" thanks

How often does Mint 18.3 update its clock setting?

I have both NTP and NTPDATE installed but I don't know how to tell the frequency of the time corrections. Is there any way to adjust how often the update occurs?

Thanks,

Then open the Update Manager and click on Refresh and you should be good. Sometime next week, reactivate the repo and the site will probably be ...

Lately I plagued with the dreaded red "X" in update manager.

Other than hoping it will correct itself what can I do to rid myself of it?
